Today, Abbott is saying that the virus has taken a "very swift and very dangerous turn":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUbdIT99mi0

Actually the dangerous turn occurs weeks to months earlier that this. The first dangerous turn was ignoring warnings of the pandemic at the federal level.

Abbott and his cronies have also contributed to the dangerous turn. When Texas reopened, it did so in violation of the CDC guidelines which mandated that a state should reopen only after two weeks of declining COVID-19 indicators. Texas did not meet that federal guideline -- Abbott ignored it.

At the state level, Abbott could have mandated that Texans wear masks in public. Not only has he not done this, but mayors of nine of Texas' largest cities are literally begging him to allow them to set rules and regulations regarding the wearing of face masks in public: https://www.city-data.com/forum/texa...thread-19.html

During the pandemic, he has allowed a good number of church services to continue, which is not sound advice in terms of trying to curtail the spread of the virus.

Now he is crowing that the virus has taken a dangerous turn -- as if nobody is to blame. Pot meet kettle.

Great job at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth. The nurses made should the last moments of a Ft Worth couple were special. They were married for 53 years.

Some Houston hospitals are at max capacity and out of Remdesivir. This is bad for all trauma patients including non-COVID patients.

Saturated Houston hospitals transferring COVID-19 patients to other cities

Harris Health Systems said it has transferred patients to UTMB in Galveston, the Woodlands, and as far away as Conroe. The scramble to find beds for patients also has a trickle down effect.

For a week now, Houston Fire Chief Sam Pena has spoken out about the longer transfer time for patients firefighters bring by ambulance. A normal transfer time may take approximately 20 minutes. In the past three weeks, data shows on more than 560 occasions, firefighters were holding their ambulance patients for more than an hour.

"Our firefighters are working extra hours, they're racking up the overtime," said Pena. "They know there's not one easy shift."
Internal Messages Reveal Crisis at Houston Hospitals as Coronavirus Cases Surge
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...surge-n1232640

Quote:
The Sunday note to the staff at Lyndon B. Johnson said that the hospital had reached maximum occupancy in its COVID-19 units. That day, nearly 50% of the patients tested for the virus had it, more than double the rate from a week before. The hospital had run out of remdesivir, an antiviral drug that’s shown some effectiveness in treating COVID-19. And for now, all elective surgeries were being canceled to preserve bed and staffing capacityHOUSTON — At Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital on Sunday, the medical staff ran out of both space for new coronavirus patients and a key drug needed to treat them. With no open beds at the public hospital, a dozen COVID-19 patients who were in need of intensive care were stuck in the emergency room, awaiting transfers to other Houston area hospitals, according to a note sent to the staff and shared with reporters.

A day later, the top physician executive at the Houston Methodist hospital system wrote to staff members warning that its coronavirus caseload was surging: “It has become necessary to consider delaying more surgical services to create further capacity for COVID-19 patients,” Dr. Robert Phillips said in the note, an abrupt turn from three days earlier, when the hospital system sent a note to thousands of patients, inviting them to keep their surgical appointments.

And at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, staff members were alerted recently that the hospital would soon begin taking in cancer patients with COVID-19 from the city’s overburdened public hospital system, a highly unusual move for the specialty hospital.

Texas winning BIG time. 27% HIGHER than CA!

Watch the stats in a couple weeks when hospitals are required for these new cases
Then in a month when caskets are required.

Fortunatley the "Boomer Remover" has morphed to the younger generation (They will require less hospitalization and smaller caskets / graves)
Those who survive may have a lifetime of respiratory conditions.

I am not going to check all of these, but I live in Smith County and one stat that is missing is how many people have RECOVERED from COVID 19. How many are active cases, how many have died? Those stats are important as well.

44.8 percent of COVID 19 cases in Smith County have recovered. There have been four deaths (the last one well over a month ago, and all were either/or very elderly with preexisting, serious health issues).

Here is where the case loads are growing the fastest by county. This is measured by taking the average number of daily cases for the last week and subtracting the average number of cases from the 1st week of June. The difference is the growth between those two points:

Harris: 626 more cases
Bexar: 426
Travis: 351
Tarrant: 261
Nueces: 223
Dallas: 193
Hidalgo: 135
Galveston: 126
El Paso: 125
McClennan: 80
Lubbock: 64
Webb: 64
Williamson: 57
Cameron: 48
Collin: 35
Jefferson: 34
Ector: 33
Guadalupe: 30
Bell: 29
Fort Bend: 28
Comal: 27
Denton: 26
Midland: 24
Smith: 24
Montgomery: 20
Brazoria: 0
Hays: -21

Here is what that growth works out to be per capita. Basically where the number of new daily cases are growing fastest per capita:

Nueces: .00062%
Galveston: .00037%
McClennan: .00033%
Travis: .00028%
Webb: .00023%
Bexar: .00021%
Lubbock: .00021%
Ector: .00020%
Guadalupe: .00019%
Hidalgo: .00017%
El Paso: .00015%
Jefferson: .00014%
Midland: .00014%
Harris: .00013%
Tarrant: .00012%
Cameron: .00011%
Smith: .00010%
Williamson: .00010%
Bell: .000080%
Dallas: .000073%
Fort Bend: .000035%
Collin: .000033%
Montgomery: .000033%
Denton: .000030%
Brazoria: 0%
Hays: -.000090%
